More info:

Hotelschool The Hague offers a four year Bachelor Programme: Bachelor of Business Administration in Hotel Management (BBA.HM), developed for professional and ambitious students seeking careers in hospitality, but also for those with interests in other industries where hospitality makes a difference such as Retail, Financial Services and Event Management. For students with previous qualification in hospitality-related studies, an accelerated programme is available: the International Fast Track Programme.

Besides the four year Bachelor Programme, Hotelschool The Hague also offers a Master in Hospitality Management (M.HM). This programme educates the next generation of hospitality leaders and focuses on hospitality concept innovation, business development and change. In 13 months, students will enhance their knowledge and leadership competencies, opening doors to strategic and corporate positions in fields like business development, consultancy, hospitality management, facility management and entrepreneurship.

In 2010, Hotelschool The Hague founded its university wide Research Centre, focusing on interdisciplinary research with a strong practice-oriented focus. Hotelschool The Hague’s ambition is to bridge the gap between academic research and how international hospitality organisations, -professionals and students can benefit from these insights. In addition, the Research Centre will concentrate on a small number of lines of research – key strategic issues within the hospitality sector – for the next five years.

The Hospitality Consultancy develops and facilitates customised (on- and offline) training programmes for both hospitality- and other service industries such as healthcare and the automotive industry. Their team of experienced hospitality experts provides companies with knowledge and skills, focusing on increasing hospitality, effectiveness, customer experience and satisfaction.

Hotelschool The Hague is proud to be ‘At the heart of hospitality’. While keeping our strong heritage in mind, we are looking forward to educate the hospitality leaders of the future.
